It was a good week at Black Mountain. In addition to being named to the Inc. 5000 list, this week our San Diego team was recognized at Monarch School’s annual “Friends of Monarch Appreciation” event which honors key volunteers and partners for their support in the past year.
The mission of the Monarch School is to educate students impacted by homelessness and to help them develop hope for a future with the necessary skills and experiences for personal success. Monarch has served San Diego for nearly three decades, beginning as a one-room education center and expanding into a K-12 comprehensive school designed to educate homeless youth.
Over the past year, the Black Mountain team has partnered with Monarch on several initiatives including sponsoring a classroom for the holidays, preparing college backpacks for students, hosting a mini in-office Career Day for seniors and throwing a graduation pizza party.
Our team has found the partnership with the Monarch School very rewarding, and we were honored to be part of their Volunteer Appreciation event. We look forward to more opportunities to work together in the future and wish all the students a successful school year!
